Bloomsburg University Head Coach Mike Collins announced recently the signing of two players to National Letters of Intent during the early signing period. Collins is in his tenth season with the Huskies, was named the 2014 PSAC East Coach of the Year. Bloomsburg comes off a 28-19 campaign in 2014, including a 20-8 mark in the PSAC East, which earned them second place in the division.

Collins on the 2015 recruiting class:

"Pitching was our priority this year and I‚??m very pleased with the two young men that signed NLI‚??s last week.¬† First and foremost they are excellent students.¬† In the classroom they fit the profile of a Bloomsburg University Baseball Player.¬† On the mound, they both attack the strike zone which is a hallmark of our pitching staff. Last spring we registered 226 strikeouts and walked 100, that‚??s the best ratio in our Eastern division and 100 walks is the second lowest total in the conference.¬† I believe these guys will help us maintain that level of efficiency."
